ARTIST: A Tribe Called Red (ATCR) TRACK: YHALLUCA__NATION ALBUM:We Are The Halluci Nation
If you’re an indigenous person living in a country that was forcefully colonized, it’s all too common to find yourself underrepresented and misrepresented if not blatantly and systematically devalued and attacked. Positive role models and a positive self-identity are hard to come by, yet the Canadian DJ collective A Tribe Called Red is a modern gateway into urban and contemporary indigenous culture and experience, celebrating all its layers and complexity. Looking to the future, without losing sight of their past, ATCR straddles a broad range of musical influences based in modern hip-hop, traditional pow wow drums and vocals, blended with edgy electronic music production styles. Currently made up of Bear Witness and 2oolman, ATCR first got together in 2008. They are part of a vital new generation of artists making a cultural and social impact in Canada alongside a renewed Aboriginal rights movement called Idle No More.
ATCR’s beginnings will always be rooted in the uplifting and inclusive Electric Pow Wow nights formerly held on the second Saturday of every month at Ottawa’s Club Babylon. During the parties, formed an eclectic a crowd of indigenous people (which includes First Nations people, Métis, Inuit, and 631 other nations) mixed with music heads, social activists and anyone looking for a great party and a safe space to come together. Electric Pow Wow formed the roots of what would become the DNA of the live ATCR experience that has now toured the world over.
